Back yard after snow
Way back yonder , in August, I met a gal at my open studio that asked if we could barter for a commission. We had been talking for quite a while and her energy was lovely as was she. We made a deal and the piece is now out of bisque. I adore it and now am thinking of the glazing hoping to bring out the best in this lovely, sweet piece. I will keep you informed about how it goes but I still wanted to share and delight you with the process and albeit a lengthy one, it is filled with delight the whole way.
Everything has two sides and it's difficult to capture it in it's entirety with one photo so.....the other side.
Isn't it wonderful! I am confident that any plant would be delighted to live and thrive sandwiched between such a cute front and back side. I may be just a bit prejudiced but then.....maybe not.
On Friday, March 30th, 2012, the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project will be having it's 8th annual CeleSoiree: Celebrating Immigration through the Arts at The Portland Company. If you have not been, you really should go! It is a great party with food, art, music along with a noble cause being supported at the same time. For the past few years I have donated drums. Having just agreeing to donate I wanted to get started on my drum for the cause. I just put the pieces together Tuesday and am thrilled witht the results. Throwing caution to the wind, trusting that it will make it through all the firings and that my glazing choices will do it justice here'tis. I'm grinning from ear to ear!
